  • "We enjoyed our 2 day stay at the engine shed which was a lovely apartment."

    Our only issue was being kept awake from 11pm til 4am from a very inconsiderate resident playing loud music throughout the night. This meant we completely lost a day as we needed to catch up with sleep the next day x returned home very tired. We did report this to the housekeeper, Jo who was very apologetic x dealt with the issue, we really couldn't fault her support x understood this incident was out of her control. Also received a call from Sykes to reassure us they had spoken to individual concerned. Just felt a little disappointed that no offer of compensation was provided given the cost we paid for the 2 nights which was approx £540.

  • "Fabulous property- we had a wonderful break."

    Holidayed in Whitby before and parking was a nightmare- the secure on site garage was a real bonus.The apartment was beautifully designed and furnished. Great to see the steam trains pull up inches away- the feature giant glass walls showed the original stone of the old engine shed and made it very quiet- simply didn’t hear any trains at night. Children would love it- and the glossy kitchen with feature lighting. Super shower and extra long heated towel rail. Lots of well thought out little touches make this a holiday home from home - like the rotating armchair by the window and the big tv in bedroom and another in lounge. We stayed in Blue Peter - ideal for two and far from cramped. And the location is ideal - in the centre of Whitby with the Abbey visible in its Halloween purple red lighting at night from the window. Extremely good value for what was on offer- wish we had booked longer.

    A very comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Being into steam railways it really is the only place to stay for us. We have stayed now 3 times and will definitely be returning next time we come to Whitby. Its central location and secure parking is a bonus. The staff that we met cleaning the apartments were very friendly and helpful a credit to the company. Plus we love Whitby a perfect combination.

    Perfect position in Whitby and parking a bonus. Major problem with rock hard pillows on the bed. Do not understand why they have to be so uncomfortable. Obviously a problem noted before. I would seriously consider replacing or providing softer pillows. Everyone needs a decent night's sleep and just not possible with current arrangement.

    Our only criticism was that the information did not highlight that the ground floor apartments are not suitable for the disabled. My wife who has to use a wheelchair struggled up and down the stairs all week. Whether it was my fault for misreading this situation or not I feel that this must be pointed out more clearly on the website.

  • "This was our first stay in Whitby."

    We looked at loads of properties and to be honest if this property wasn’t reduced we probably wouldn’t have given it a second look. So glad that it was and we did because it was perfect. It ticked all the right boxes. Location was amazing. Within walking distance to everywhere, easy to access with a car. Had all the amenities we needed. Very spacious and clean. The water was lovely and hot all the time. The car park was great and secure, which for my husband and his pride and joy was an absolute must. Being so close to the trains was spectacular. The only criticism we have (and this is only because of our preferences) is that the mattress was too hard. The bed itself was huge. Can’t recommend this place enough.

    Convenient for Whitby town centre with excellent and convenient car parking. We were very happy with all the facilities provided and would happily recommend it to others. In fact, our visit was following a personal recommendation from a friend. The only adverse comment is that external signage could be a little clearer, perhaps a sign nearer the entrance door. It was raining when we arrived, and I was not sure whether i was trying to access the correct door. My fault, I input the wrong code, but not helpful when getting wet! Needless to say, once sorted, everything worked perfectly try thereafter.

  • "Accommodation was perfect, Blue Peter, cannot fault it, beautiful kitchen, comfortable lounge and a gorgeous big bed."

    Complimentary arrival bag, consisted of the necessities after a long drive, thank you ! Steam trains passing were a joy to see and hear. The only concern having spoken to a couple of other guests was the parking, although we managed to park in the secure parking garage which houses about 10 cars and one car just outside garage, it is on a first come basis and if you don’t manage to get parked you can park on the road or near the Co Op, which if you’re told parking is available you shouldn’t have to park elsewhere. The owners should consider when booking to highlight your parking bay, as the parking bays are numbered and if guests arrive in two cars, then one of them should park elsewhere. Also if you have a disabled guest, they need to park at the accommodation, not elsewhere. If you do get the short straw, we was considering parking at the top of the driveway in front of the bin cupboard, which no doubt would annoy the other guests, but just a thought. Other than the parking, it was perfect and no doubt we will return, thank you.

    The booking experience was brilliant, very reassuring for us older generation ( not all of us are au fait with booking over the internet) the position of the cottage was excellent, central for everything and the shortest of walks to all major attractions. It was wonderful to know our car was securely garaged and probably saved us a lot of money not having to pay parking fees. The accommodation was top quality, everything had been thought of we wanted for nothing.The welcome pack was a lovely touch and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We enjoyed the trains and we would definitely book again. We have already been promoting to family and friends what a wonderful place it was to stay. The only downside was an extremely hard bed.

    Such a good idea to convert the engine shed into apartments. Conveniently located for everything Whitby. The apartment was spotless and very comfortable and had everything we might need. Parking is easy and secure. Really appreciated the lovely welcome pack. We enjoyed watching the trains from the windows although no steam trains from Whitby so my husband had to manage staring at diesel engines. But a train ride to pickering satisfied his stream train watching requirements. Not suitable if you want to sit outside as no outside area. Overall a great stay.

    Spotlessly clean, modern facilities, comfortable accomodation and a superb secure undercover garage which is a massive bonus in Whitby. We knew this as we booked but of course there is no outside area to sit as you are right on the railway track so I have marked facilities down a little but that is only to reflect the obvious. Actually though, my wife has little interest in trains but was the first to run to the window when one past, its intoxicating. The owner spotted that a previous guest had taken some of the instructions from the room and personally came to our room to replace them without being asked. You cant get better service than that. A fabulous interesting place to stay within a three minute walk to the centre. Brilliant. We will book again.

    A little feedback for the owners please (hopefully constructive and not meant to be negative) - the bedroom would benefit from a black out blind as the lights from the car park directly opposite are on all night and shine directly into the bedroom. We would have loved to try out the coffee maker but no instructions were provided and therefore we were unable to enjoy it - ditto the electric oven - we did manage to fathom out the oven eventually but as gas oven users at home this was no mean feat! It may also benefit future users to know that the apartment benefits from a washer/dryer (think it only mentions washing machine) - as the weather was very wet we found this invaluable. Also to mention a small freezer. We only had to ring Sykes' office once to double check the entry codes as recent reviews stated issues, but we were dealt with in a very professional and friendly manner. Note: We have already booked an apartment on the upper floor for next year we enjoyed it so much - thank you!!! An excellent review on Trip Advisor will also follow!!!

    Despite its proximity to the "1:1 scale model of a railway" it was almost silent, and even with the french windows open it was not usually noisy. It is perfectly situated for the centre of Whitby and the Coop supermarket. Every item of kitchenware that could possibly be needed was supplied, and there was a thoughtful welcome pack of bread, butter and other essentials. Furniture, fittings and work surfaces were new and robustly built. There were few downsides. I found the bed and sofa were rather hard, and was unable to get the smart radiators to emit heat, but I had my trusty hot water bottle. It was not clear which parking space I should use. I happened to meet the owner who said I should ignore the numbers because two spaces were reserved for electric cars to charge, but nevertheless I found a snippy note on my windscreen to tell me I was in someone else's space. Perhaps the listing could say "first come, first served" or similar? I would definitely consider staying here again.
